love day is coming

hi. valentine's day is coming. I couldn't be more thrilled. We saw this setting at Pottery Barn cute.

well, I am sure I could, but...I think it is really fun to make valentines and enjoy pink and red more. Also, this is one time of the year that making and drawing hearts aren't lame.

Vintage Planes

love that.

on our excursion yesterday, we went to the northstar mall, as aaron put that cute picture on the blog of the HUGE cowboy boots. It is a super fancy mall. Anyway, we went into Pottery Barn, don't go in there if you are thinking about having kids. :) ha. Aaron was playing with all of these neat block toys that they have, I decided our little boy's room will be in rocket or airplane theme....and I know, we could never really afford all that they had displayed, but it is fun to think about. Aaron, of course, thinks that we will have a bunch of boys and we'll name all of them Aaron. That is sick. He says sometimes, "when we all all of our little aaron's running around..." and I say, "you can dream, buddy, but that is as far as it will go."

Do you know that George Foreman has, in fact, done this? Yeah. Sick. I mean, wow. What is his wife thinking? Allowing the madness to happen? Even his daughters carry his name for example, one of his daughters is Freeda George Foreman. wow. lucky. it won't be happening in our case.

anyway, aaron is at a primary board meeting and I am baking a two layer chocolate cake. They had some amazing desserts at the Cheesecake Factory, but we were wayyy too full, so I decided I would make a cake here this weekend instead.

Get excited. Thanks to Whitney, I have a pan set that she gave us for our wedding, and it has two cute little 9" circle pans. AND! I have a cake stand that I am going to display it on. wow. If it looks good enough, i will post it on this thing. cross your fingers.

i will too.

OH! real quick, i just wanted to tell you that aaron and I went to the stake adult dance last, who knew that dances with tons of moms and dads could be so fun. It was a ton of fun, and Lyssa Terry Zimmerman went with her husband and we went with Kemy and was really fun. I forgot how much I LOVE to dance. Aaron was such a GREAT sport. 10 bonus points for him.

Anyway, I want to plan another dance party soon. It could be kind of lame just at our house, but that might be the only venue available. We'll see. I'll let you know. Oh, and you are all invited. Just swing on over to texas, okay?

good. it's a date.

don't you love pottery barn! i could definitely spend a lot...really a lot of money there. good thing the closest one to me is in trolley square and I don't get there too often? P.S. is this a subtle way of telling everyone you guys are expecting a little boy?

Melissa, just consider this a "circled yes!" and How fun is your blog?! I love the colors. You are going to have to teach me how to do that cause i'm way jealous. you know what we should do? Plan a Saturday or something and go hit the Outlet malls or of course, a dance party...just something cause I agree, we should seriously hang out stat! So do you guys know what you'll be doing for V day? I hope we do something fun or at least ice cookies with pink frosting!! yum
peace i'm out

Okay, so I know you are busy with you mom in town etc....but we had better get some updated pictures when you get a chance. I just wait and wait...I think I check you blog about 2 a day. That couldn't be healthy (probably I should be working on a project and not be so obsessed with blogging). :) I am only teasing about the update, but if you do take pictures while your mom is there and you have a chance let us see it!

thank thank you for putting up pictures. Those pillows are so cute. And your room as in your bedroom looks really nice with the lamp on and the bed made. It looks like mom had a hay day in the "melissa room". I laughed when you said there is still a pile there because usually we couldn't go to bed until all the piles were dealt with, because "it feels so good to wake up with a clean room in the morning". ha ok love you bye.
